Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/dead_clown_barbecue/front_med_400px.jpg

From the author of Pressure, Dweller and A Bad Day for Voodoo comes a new short story collection featuring seven never-before-printed tales and original cover artwork by Alex McVey.  The stories within this collection range from hilarious to downright disturbing, proving that Jeff Strand is still a master at what he's known for: a delicious blend of the humorous and the horrific.  Strand fans will take delight in the seven new stories first printed in Dead Clown Barbecue, including "Pett Semmuteary" "Dummy" "True Hero" "Fangboy and the Troll" "Stop Stabbing Me" "Pregnancy Test" and "Push the Button."

Click here to read more about Dead Clown Barbecue by Jeff Strand

Description

A man who finds a severed nose on a plate on his dining room table. A bell that can summon Satan (maybe). Casual Fridays at work that get out of control. A cheery outlook on the post-apocalyptic landscape. The final thoughts of a doomed skydiver. A girl punished by having to share a bed with her grandmother’s corpse. Revenge via baking a tarantula into a cake. A shocking look at where those awful computer-generated book covers come from. And the lost tale of Fangboy.

These are only a few of the demented stories in DEAD CLOWN BARBECUE, a collection of thirty gleefully macabre tales, seven of which were written just for this collection. There’s even a brand new one about a ventriloquist dummy. Those things creep you out, right? You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. Okay...you probably won’t actually scream, unless you already had issues before you started reading, but you might cringe and get a little spooked.

“No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand’s perfect mixture of comedy and terror.” - Cemetery Dance

About the Author

http://jeffstrand.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/jeffstrand72dpi180x270.jpg

"Jeff Strand is a funny, deeply disturbed individual."—Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door

Jeff Strand's bio used to mention his cat, but every author mentions a cat in their bio, so he's decided to quit doing it. Fight the power.

He's been writing ever since he was old enough to throw screaming fits in crowded supermarkets, though the quality of his work from that era is questionable. "How to Rescue a Dead Princess" is his silliest book.

If you're looking for something less silly, although not exactly high literature, you may want to try his Andrew Mayhem series: "Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)," "Single White Psychopath Seeks Same," and "Casket For Sale (Only Used Once)." Also available is his obligatory 'giant ants attack the world' novel, "Mandibles."

Cemetery Dance magazine said that "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." They weren't talking about "How to Rescue a Dead Princess."

He checks his e-mail every forty-six seconds, and receiving e-mail from his readers makes him positively giddy. It's almost a little creepy. Write him at your own risk at JeffStrand@aol.com.

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/poetry/luminous_worlds/front_cover_300px.jpg

Dark Regions Press proudly presents Luminous Worlds by Rhysling Award winning sci-fi poet David C. Kopaska-Merkel.

Click here to read more about Luminous Worlds by David C. Kopaska-Merkel

Description

We can only write what we know, whether that comes from communicating in broken French and broken English with a Parisian nurse, or staring in horror at the human effects of a geological calamity. Here are twenty years worth of dark poetry, representing a dark world, the very one we live in. These poems were written at home, at work, in the air, shipboard in the middle of the Indian Ocean, confined to a hospital bed in a foreign land, in other words, all the usual places. Influenced by Lovecraft, Zelazny, and Algernon Blackwood, among others, Kopaska-Merkel enlists his imagination and scientific background in service to poetic expressions of the wonder, horror, and magic that permeate our world.


Advance praise for  Luminous Worlds

“Linked by themes of cosmic isolation, ruin, dead cities, and mysterious women, these poems proceed by their own sure dream logic. Kopaska-Merkel’s deep understanding of science blends strangely but effectively with the surreal to create convincing narratives of impossible experience.” 
– Ann K. Schwader, Rhysling Award winner, author of Twisted in Dream and Wild Hunt of the Stars

“Over the last 25 years, David C. Kopaska-Merkel’s Dreams and Nightmares has been at the heart of speculative poetry movement, publishing some of the very best speculative poetry anywhere – in these pages, you’ll see that he’s written some of it, as well.  David has been a flame at the heart of a movement; herein, find the artistic core of things, and the vision behind a now-venerable publication. Damn, but the man can write!”
– W. Gregory Stewart, Nebula Nominee and multiple Rhysling Award winner

“The stark wind of a cautionary tale dips through the ruined cities and skewed alien love songs of Luminous Worlds. These are cohesive literate subtle explorations loaded with kinetics. ‘Ghost Lakes’ haunts with geologic power. An entire Japanese horror movie is encapsulated in ‘Tsunami Child.’ Kopaska-Merkel's formidable voice becomes a force to be reckoned with.”
– Robert Frazier, SFPA Grandmaster Poet, author of Phantom Navigation



About the Author

http://www.sfpoetry.com/ra/photos/06/06Kopaska-M.jpg

David C. Kopaska-Merkel describes rocks for the State of Alabama, and publishes Dreams and Nightmares, a magazine of SF and fantasy poetry. More than 1000 of his poems and stories have been published since the 70s. In 2006 a collaboration with Kendall Evans won the Rhysling Award of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Flash fiction can be found at http://www.dailycabal.com. David lives with an artist and furry layabouts in a centuried farmhouse with a yellow tin roof. David was born in Virginia, but has lived where the dentist is king as long as anywhere.

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/enoch_coffin/3d_book_300px.png

Enoch Coffin is a proud inhabitant of Massachusetts, an artist following in the footsteps of local legend Richard Upton Pickman. Coffin is an artist with a singular quest: to capture in paint, or ink, or clay -- however he might -- sights that no mortal has ever portrayed in art before...and lived to exhibit. His quest will take him throughout actual New England locations, and that other New England of H. P. Lovecraft, where his models will be doomed souls, ravening ghouls, and entities from beyond the veil.

Individually acclaimed for their weird fiction, in this collection of short stories authors W. H. Pugmire and Jeffrey Thomas collaborate to paint the portrait of a character every bit as fascinating and unique as the subjects of his artistic encounters.

With haunting illustrations on the front and back cover by renowned illustrator Santiago Caruso and interior illustrations accompanying every story by illustrator Clint Leduc, Encounters with Enoch Coffin is anticipated to be one of the best-selling Dark Regions Press titles of 2013.

Don't miss our live chat event with authors W.H. Pugmire and Jeffrey Thomas on Tuesday, February 19th at 3:00PM PST (6:00PM EST) at: http://www.darkregions.com/events/

Matter of Truth and Death

Praise for W.H. Pugmire

"The prose-poet of the horror/fantasy field; he may be the best prose-poet we have...perhaps the leading Lovecraftian author writing today." - S. T. Joshi

"An important figure in the fields of modern horror and the weird." - Laird Barron

"Stylistically he owes as much to Oscar Wilde and Henry James as to HPL and Poe, creating a truly unholy fusion that defies academic boundaries between ‘mainstream’ and ‘genre’ fiction." - Editor and scholar Scott Connors


Praise for Jeffrey Thomas

"In time he will, in this reviewer’s opinion, be listed alongside King, Barker, Koontz, and McCammon." - Brian Keene

"Jeffrey Thomas’ imagination is as twisted as it is relentless." - F. Paul Wilson

"With brutal elegance and chilling subtlety, Thomas pulls his readers into his dark visions immediately from every opening line." - Paul Di Filippo

He had no idea how large the creature was, but it must be colossal, and yet there was something skeletal, wasted, in its aspect. It rested on all four weirdly-bent, bony limbs, its emaciated body the same color as the rock upon which it was perched; a grayish-green, as if it were a chameleon that had changed its hue to blend in. The only other color was a white cloth or gauze wrapped around its hairless head, completely concealing its face. But as it called out, the depression of its elongated open mouth could be seen through the material that bound and blinded it.

The 150 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition is still available and is signed by Rick Hautala, bound in black leatherette, features eight original interior illustrations by artist Glenn Chadbourne, colored book ribbon and is stamped in hot foil with the book title and author name on the spine of the book.


Description

One of 2012’s HWA Lifetime Achievement Award Winners, Rick Hautala has a writing career that spans more than three decades. From Moondeath, his first novel published in 1980, to the republication of his best-selling novel The White Room (DRP, 2012) and his forthcoming “Little Brothers” novella Indian Summer (CD Publications, 2012), his novels and short stories have entertained millions of readers around the world.

Now comes Glimpses, a career-spanning “best of” collection that brings together twenty-four stories, including eight from each of Rick’s critically-acclaimed collections Bedbugs and Occasional Demons, and eight previously uncollected stories.

And Glimpses delivers what it promises—quick glimpses into the deepest shadows of our lives, around unfamiliar corners of streets we think we know, and down the darkest alleys of strange cities where readers will have to face their worst fears and their most unnerving nightmares.

Of course, Glimpses wouldn’t be a Rick Hautala collection if it didn’t included gorgeous original artwork—a wraparound cover and eight new illustrations—from award-winning artist Glenn Chadbourne.

So whether it’s in a haunted schoolhouse or an abandoned lighthouse, an iron bridge that spans a fast-moving river or a World War I battlefield, prepare yourself because you never know what you may catch a glimpse of … and by then, it may already be too late.

The new mystery/thriller novella from author Gord Rollo (The Jigsaw Man, Strange Magic, Valley of the Scarecrow, Crowley's Window) is coming this Tuesday, April 30th to DarkRegions.com.

Description

Jake Mercer’s life is spiraling out of control. As a criminal profiler and one of the senior homicide investigators in the Oakland Police Department, he’s spent the last twenty-five years getting into the heads of killers trying to understand the way they think. He’s the best at what he does but constantly playing in the minds of madmen carries a heavy price, leaving Jake an out of shape, alcoholic loner suspended from active duty.

The murders have started.

Another serial killer is prowling the streets now, a lunatic who’s making a game of nailing retired Catholic priests to trees and bridges and hydro poles around the city. Torture and murder isn’t enough, they’re experimenting with the bodies to further whatever diabolical plan only they seem to know.

The experiments have begun.

Broken down or not, Lieutenant Mercer might be the only man who can catch this killer before the city starts to panic. Back on duty and trying his best to stay out of the bottle, Jake finds himself teamed up with two rookie detectives in what will be his most difficult case ever, and possibly his last...

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

Hey folks, I'm sending this mass-forum message to inform you of a new collection from an author that I admire and respect greatly. Truthfully, Ramsey is one of the few authors that can still genuinely scare me. I like that. He also happens to be one of the finest dark fiction writers we have.

Find the information below. Holes for Faces is launching on Tuesday, August 13th on DarkRegions.com, Amazon.com and Amazon Kindle. Signed limited edition hardcover preorders include trade paperback and/or ebook editions.

Holes For Faces by Ramsey Campbell
Launching Tuesday, August 13th on DarkRegions.com, Amazon.com and Amazon Kindle

One of the most respected living horror writers in the world, Campbell has more awards for his horror tales than any other author, and "is likely to be remembered as the leading horror writer of our generation," according to S.T. Joshi. One of the heirs apparent to early-twentieth-century American author H. P. Lovecraft, Campbell's horror stories are often set in contemporary Merseyside, England, his own hometown, and involve quite ordinary characters. His unsettling, dreamlike prose, however, transforms his work into very effective horror fiction.

Holes for Faces collects many of his best tales from the first decade of this century. An attempt to avoid a haunted house leads into worse danger. The announcements at a railway station deal with stranger things than trains, and is that another railway station in the distance or a different kind of destination? A childhood game becomes a source of terror, and so does a radio quiz show. Even Christmas decorations may not be trusted, and beware of that Advent calendar! A hotel provides amenities you mightn’t welcome, and a visit to a tourist attraction attracts an uninvited follower. A train journey may never end, unless it already has, and a visit to a hospital brings back more than memories. A myth about a horror film has unwanted consequences. There are angels you mightn’t want to see too clearly, if that’s what they are. And you’ll have to decide if it’s better to stay in the dark or see what’s waiting there. You’ll find uncanny dread in these pages, and disquiet and terror, but also poignancy and comedy of paranoia. One theme runs through all the stories: youth and age.

Praise for Holes for Faces

"Consider Holes for Faces another textbook by one of our best practitioners, an essential addition to the bookshelves of horror readers and writers alike." - FEAR NET

"Holes For Faces is a must-read for Ramsey Campbell fans, collecting his best stories from this fledgling century we find ourselves in. And if you’ve not been introduced to Mr. Campbell yet, then I can think of no better place to start." - The Occult Detective (author Bob Freeman)

"...a superb collection of stories of the strange and the dark that I’m sure fans of the genre will love. I know I did." - The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog

"The title story, “Holes for Faces,” is a tale of sliding realities in which our protagonist sees a very different world around him. He becomes aware of the horrors that no one else can see. These stories reflect Campbell’s ability to take normal and tilt it just far enough to create fear. This could happen to you he reminds us and that is the greatest fear of all." - Horror Novel Reviews

"...as the reader progresses into the tales, the tension increases as the stories become more sinister and, well, down right creepy in that some of the stories make us question our innermost selves. In reading "Holes For Faces", which I have enjoyed immensely, I discovered that my personal favorites are "Getting It Wrong," "Holes for Faces", and "The Rounds"." - Widescreen Online Review
